Usually, the hardware in the smartphones is generally capable to do more than what the company allows you to do via the official software.
There are a number of reasons why the OEMs hold back these features but the developer community of Android has noticed the ability of the devices to do more so they create mods and also Custom ROMs to unleash the real power of the devices.
